Are you interested in learning more about herbs and how to best use them?

This year's Herb Awareness Day, promoted annually by the Queensland Herb Society, is all about flavours. On Sunday, 26th May, at the Albion Peace Centre, 102 McDonald Road, Windsor, you can learn how to propagate herbs, how to grow them, and how to cook with them. So many herbs and so little Thyme!

This FREE event will be a fascinating day of Herbal Discovery, with not only a huge array of herbs and herbal products for sale, but also numerous demonstrations and workshops by herbal experts sharing their knowledge and love of herbs.

Guest Speakers on the day include :

9:30am-10:15am Gina Winter from Nourishing Herbs
How to include herbs in our daily lives.

10:30am-11:00am Marilena Stanton from Herby Waffles

12:15pm-12:45pm Sarah Heath from Basilea Living Herbs
Learn how to best use all those different Basil's.

1:30pm-2:15pm Wendy Skelton from Just Geraniums
How to WOW with desserts made using herbs

You'll learn about culinary herbs and medicinal herbs and their benefits, and the products that can be made using herbs.

You'll be able to browse a wide variety of stalls with herbal products including preserves, coffee, teas, spices, skincare, bush foods, and wines available for purchase.

Then there will be herb displays galore for you to touch, smell and taste and to learn which herb is which.

If you get weary, you can re-energise at the Sage Cafe, with a delicious home baked, herb inspired food and beverage.

Herbs are extremely versatile plants, providing a wealth of flavours for cooking and fragrances for potpourris, posies and floral arrangements.

Sounds like a really worthwhile day, doesn't it?

Doors open at 9am and close at 3pm. The Hall is a 225-metre walk from the Albion Railway Station, and 400 metres from the closest bus stop. There is both off-street and street parking.
